You must have missed the following in the evolution of that script:

+ Remove some unnecessary default ZFS datasets from the automatic "zfsboot"
  script. Such as: /usr/ports/distfiles /usr/ports/packages /usr/obj /var/db
  /var/empty /var/mail and /var/run (these can all be created as-needed once
  the system is installed).

The idea is that all of those directories you mentioned are empty
by default on a freshly installed system. Compare that to directories
which are not empty -- if the user wants the data in a separate
dataset, they have salvage existing data in the process.
